What you'll do
We will dive into the world of Japanese tattoo artistry, a major part of underground Japanese culture. I will explain the techniques that are unique to this practice, and how Japanese tattoos differ from the global norm. We will then meet with my friend, veteran tattoo artist Mr. Toru, who has over 20 years of experience. He’ll show and talk us through some of his tattoo and modern-pop designs. We’ll even have an opportunity to observe tattooing first-hand as Mr. Toru works on a client.
I’ve spent the past 20 years promoting this art form and have many connections with tattoo artists in Japan. My wife and I have a great deal of experience hosting people from around the world on Airbnb. We'd love to offer you a glimpse into this less explored aspect of Japanese art and culture.
